Watch the Gravity teaser trailer starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney

Alfonso Cuarón looks to the stars

Gravity has finally released a trailer online, hot on the heels of the moody teaser poster.

The long-awaited film, which saw a multitude of A-listers linked to the lead roles before Oscar-winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney were locked in, is one of 2013’s most intriguing releases.

Not based on a comic-book/sci-fi novel/TV show, it’s a wholly original invention from a script by director Alfonso Cuarón and his son Jonás Cuarón.

Bullock stars as medical engineer Dr Ryan Stone, a newcomer to space flight, and Clooney is veteran shuttle commander Matt Kowalsky. After a mid-flight disaster, the pair end up detached from their craft and floating out into the darkness.

Clooney has previous form when it comes to dark, thinky sci-fi, having starred in Steven Soderbergh’s Solaris, and Alfonso Cuarón’s Children Of Men was thought-provoking and grittily believable. For Bullock, this is her first genre entry since Demolition Man (we're guessing that Gravity'll be a little subtler than that Stallone vehicle).

Check out the trailer below:



Gravity opens in the UK on 18 October 2013.

      If they wanted to do it realistically, there should not have been sound in space.The only sound would be the radio chatter.

      Intrigued... That looks like it could possibly be the most claustrophobic film i'll ever watch. Even the trailer had me holding my breathe as she tried to grab hold of anything she could.
